5 tips for helping your child adjust to the extra hour when the clocks go back
On the 29th October, in the early hours of Sunday morning at 2am, the clocks will go backwards by one hour. For most adults this is fantastic news as it means an extra hour in bed, but for parents with young children this is highly unlikely! If your child usually wakes at 6am, with the time change it is likely they will wake at 5am and that is not something to look forward to! Routine is key for children, so making the transition as unnoticeable as possible is essential. However, there is no need to panic. Here are our 5 tips for getting your baby ready for the time change to ensure a pain-free bedtime!

Understanding your child’s bowel movements
For new parents, getting to grips with your baby’s bowel movements can be overwhelming. I know it was for me! I always found myself thinking things like ‘Is this stool an odd colour?’, ‘Should Katie be soiling her nappy so often?’ and ‘What consistency should Katie’s stools be?’. The answer to these questions of mine – like most things to do with parenting – is that every baby is different. Your little one’s bowel movements are dependent on a number of different factors, such as whether they’re breastfeeding and how fast their metabolism is.

How to create the perfect sleeping environment for your baby
Helping your baby get a good night’s sleep is essential not only for their wellbeing, but for yours too. If your little one is not sleeping properly, then the chances are that you are not getting much rest either – leaving you exhausted and probably stressed. While it is natural for a baby to wake throughout the night, and for new parents to suffer from broken sleep, you can help your baby rest better by creating the perfect sleeping environment for them. Here are just a few tips for doing so that I learnt while bringing up Katie.

How to get your toddler to sleep in their own bed
After the months of sleepless nights and early morning wakeup calls that come with looking after a baby, it is natural that you would look forward to some good nights’ sleep when your little one reaches about 18 months. But for some toddlers, sleeping on their own in the dark is not a comforting idea, and, as they are now able to toddle around, they might decide that snuggling up with mum and dad is more appealing. Here are just some of the tips I gained when Katie was going through a phase of wanting to sleep in my bed as a toddler.

When should my baby start crawling and walking?
A baby’s first year is full of exciting new discoveries for them when it comes to getting mobile. From bum-shuffling and crawling through to taking those wobbly first steps, your little one will experiment with lots of types of movement until they feel confident and independent enough to start toddling around. Before you know it, they’ll be zooming round the house spiritedly and you’ll be wondering where your docile little bundle of joy went!

When can I start feeding my baby solids?
Moving your baby onto solids is a big step that cannot be rushed. Your little one needs to be completely ready to be weaned off breastmilk or formula, and it is a process that takes time. Your baby will have only ever tasted, digested and had the sensation of milk in their mouths, so you can imagine the textures and flavour sensations they’ll experience when they move onto mashed vegetables and soft fruits.
